Fast Forward is the new project developed by Disability Direct. The project is funded by The Big Lottery and aims to deliver a host of intergenerational skill sharing workshops, activities and events. The project encourages younger people between the ages of 11-25 and older people aged 50+ to participate in workshops, training events and interactive sessions in Derby and Derbyshire.

Hello, we are Lea O’Meara and Claire Whitehead, the new Community Engagement Officers with Disability Direct who lead the project.
These are exciting times and we very much hope to engage with as many people as possible from both generations. If you would like to be a part of Fast Forward we would love to hear from you.
